Episode 1: An International Conversation

In this episode the Eduro Learning Advisory Board gets together to chat about technology and education. This time we talk about social media: what is it that makes these tools so powerful, and how do they look different based on your cultural context.

  • Which apps are popular in your region of the world?
  • How does this represent the culture where you are?
  • What connects all of these? What is similar?
  • What is the purpose behind social media?
  • How do people use these different tools?

Your host, Kim Cofino was joined today by Chrissy Hellyer, and Advisory Board members Pana Asavavatana, Clint Hamada, Ben Sheridan, Keri-lee Beasley, Rebekah Madrid and Brian Lockwood.
